By Carol Stocker...The big annual opening and sale of native trees, shrubs and perennials happens this Saturday, April 13, at the New England Wild Flower Society headquarters at Garden in the Woods, 180 Hemenway Road, Framingham. This is perhaps the best opportunity in the country to purchase locally grown indigenous plants available nowhere else. All plants are responsibly propagated. The beautiful gardens contain the country's largest collection of native plants.10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visit www.newenglandwild.org for more information.
Nasami Farm, 128 North Street, Whately, will open for the season April 20. This extension of NEWFS sits on 75 beautiful acres in the Pioneer Valley. Here most of the hard to find woody material for homeowners and landscape professions is propagated. The Garden shop offers plants, horticultural books and local artisan products.
